Fresh lilacs are a great addition to these crepes. They add beautiful color and will impress any guest. Make these in the spring when lilacs are in bloom.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
This is one of my favorite recipes. It's best to make the batter at least 30 minutes ahead so the flour can absorb all the moisture before you start cooking the crepes.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
This is a very easy, quick and delicious brunch item. When they taste the nutty apple pie filling tucked inside the creamy vanilla sauce draped over the tender crepes, everyone "oohs" and "aahs" between bites. Prepare a big batch—people tend to go back for seconds and even thirds!
My mother is a wonderful cook who always likes to prepare (and improve on!) dishes she's sampled at restaurants. That's what I did with these blintzes, and my family loves my fruity version even more than the original.
My daughter, Dena, is the real cook in our family, and she's always trying new recipes and encouraging me to fix things, too. She insisted I make these crepes, and I'm glad she did—now they are my husband Jake's favorite dessert!
